DiYA March: New Diverse Middle Grade and YA Novels

Last month we announced that we’d be taking over Diversity in YA‘s roundups of new diverse middle grade and young adult books coming out each month, started by authors Cindy Pon and Malinda Lo. Using the DiYA definition, we define diversity for the purpose of this roundup as: (1) main characters or major secondary characters (e.g., a love interest or best friend kind of character) who are of color or are LGBT; or (2) written by a person of color or LGBT author.

March brings us quite a few new diverse books (SEVENTEEN! is that some kind of a record??) which is pretty exciting. You can browse through them and learn more over at our Pinterest board:

Take a look through them all, add some to your to-read pile, read ‘em, recommend ‘em. Together we’ll make the book world a more inclusive place!

Feel free to add any titles that we missed in the comments, and we’ll add them to the list.
